Chateau La Lagune, 3eme Grand Cru Classé, Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France, 2005

Grapes: A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, 80ha vineyard on gravel soil, aged 18 months in French oak barrels (55% new)

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"This is the finest wine made at this estate since 1982, and possibly the greatest La Lagune of all time. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by an exquisite bouquet of spice box, incense, sweet unsmoked cigar tobacco, black cherry liqueur, forest floor, and subtle toasty oak. Reminiscent of a Cote de Nuits grand cru blended with a top-notch Bordeaux, this beauty possesses silky tannins, a broad, savory, expansive mouthfeel, and intrinsic precision as well as elegance. Moreover, this fabulous wine is a relative bargain for the vintage. Seamless and prodigious!" Drink 2010-2025.

95/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr., WINE ADVOCATE, April 2008

"Tobacco, cedar, black raspberry, licorice and smoke, the wine is a medium/full bodied, silky, fresh, vibrant, lively, wine of finesse, lushness and elegance. The wine was made from a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvginon, 35% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. I have been following this beauty since it was initially produced and this is the best showing yet. Due to its elegant, silky nature, you can drink this today. But I'm willing to bet that another 5 more years of rest will add more depth, complexity and nuances to the wine."
